For versioning an executable, we have added a PowerShell script that updates the AssemblyInfo.cs file with the required version. We generate a version based on the changeset number. The format looks below :

[assembly: AssemblyVersion("3.0.8745.0")]
[assembly: AssemblyFileVersion("3.0.8745.0")]

This versioning happens before compilation.

We have below MSBUILD arguments :

/t:$(Target);Publish /p:SignManifests=true /p:BootstrapperEnabled=false /p:IsWebBootstrapper=true /p:UpdateEnabled=true /p:Prefer32bit=false /p:InstallURL="http://localhost/" /p:PublishDir="$(build.artifactstagingdirectory)\$(ClientArtifact)\Publish\\" /p:OutputPath="$(build.artifactstagingdirectory)\$(ClientArtifact)\Output" /p:ProductName=$(AppName) /p:ApplicationVersion="3.0.0.$(Build.SourceVersion)" /p:CreateWebPageOnPublish=false /v:minimal

but after compilation version is applied to exe in
but not the exe in

Any Idea why is it happening and how to resolve this.

What I have tried:

I couldn't figure it out the issue, I planned to use AssemblyInfoTask but the version we generate is from a PowerShell script function.

The "versioning happens AFTER compilation" ... What does that mean? AssemblyInfo.cs is a "source" file. How do you expect it to take effect? (without compiling / building)
